john mccain when he chose sarah palin. for mitt romney, there have been so many, it is hard to determine which one is the hook. romney lived in a castle in france during the vietnam war which would have eliminated him from being a -- can you imagine what the right wing would do if a democrat had got a draft deferment to hang out in france! >> in a castle fighting the good fight i haven't trying to convert the french to marmennism -- to mormonism. >> and stop drinking wine. >> stephanie: that's like trying to get me to stop drinking wine. you say the rude pundit has long believed, this is high happy clappy part, not only would obama win but win by a big margin as much as in 2008 or more. that's awfully landslidey for several reasons primarily the primary one being no matter what he tries to do, mitt romney is an absolute [ bleep ] head.

6:38 am
minute he sees it, it just shows that -- he flongs the 3:00 a.m. phone -- he flunks the 3:00 a.m. phone call. >> stephanie: that one picture -- he has such a bad sense of politics. he's walking away from the podium with this smirk on his face like he scored points. >> oh, yes. that nailed it look. >> stephanie: yeah. >> it's repellant. i think that's what's going on is more and more people are seeing not only is he -- incompetent with terrible plans for the country but that he's just such a -- i don't think i can use the word. >> stephanie: economically, he's a disaster in terms of -- literally, i believe somebody did the math on it. his tax cuts, they're four times what bush's were. but then you look at the world stage and you think oh, my god this guy would start world war iii. >> that's the thing is like -- first of all i think that somebody -- they ran the
6:39 am
numbers. he could close pretty much every loophole on people making more than $250,000 a year. and it still wouldn't pay for the tax cut. and this is not to mention that there's other tax cuts he wants to do, also. we're not even talking about the elimination of the the capital gains tax and other things. and then on top of that, this seeming -- owe basance to netanyahu as to what's going on in the iran. it would be the stupidest mistake. >> stephanie: i wanted to jump in my tv and throttle david gregory as usual. did you see that? he just kept asking netanyahu the same question over and over again. did the administration throw israel under the bus? what are you reading romney campaign talking points over and over? he kept trying to goad him didn't he? >> maybe he just needed that tv moment. i don't know. >> stephanie: well exactly. the bottom line is romney's
6:40 am
policy is exactly the same as obama's. >> yeah. it is just -- you know, romney -- romney uses a-hole language to present it and obama uses diplomatic language to do it. >> stephanie: let's go back to your stuff on the embassy. a perfect example as the president said someone who shoots first and then aims later. literally, he doesn't know that ambassador -- people have been killed. he blames the administration for sympathizing with the people that did it when the administration didn't say -- and as you say, it was a -- excuse me, a statement from the embassy itself. so let's get this straight. mitt romney believes at that moment with their lives on the line, the u embassy employees in the building should have said something to piss off the protestors even further. >> yeah. or i guess they shouldn't have said anything. they didn't know what was going on. they were under attack. they released a statement just saying yo, yo, we don't like that movie either. which by the way that movie
6:41 am
have you watched it? >> stephanie: i've seen a clip. >> yeah, well, you know, it looks to me like somebody edited together -- and this is my conspiracy theory on it, somebody edited together all of the nonporn parts of a porn film plopped in the word mohammed every now and then. >> oh, my god. >> stephanie: part where they say is that the doorbell? is that the pizza guy? and in comes mohammed. >> i didn't order any falafels. >> stephanie: sausage? who ordered sausage? incredible this is causing what it is in the middle east. again, you can't make the point enough this is not in response to obama administration policies. >> well, okay. now i'm going to go off the happy clappy for a moment. >> stephanie: oh, we're out of time. >> stop it. let him go. >> stephanie: go ahead! >> if you got drone strikes going on, that's not going on in egypt. but you know, if there are drone
6:42 am
strikes going on constantly and then to go back further not just blame obama but you know, and if there's been these wars that have gone on there -- >> stephanie: this was in response -- but this was planned for the september 11th anniversary, correct? >> right. well the thing that happened in libya was definitely. that was a coordinated effort to mark the anniversary. which, you know, i mean some chocolates would have been nice. >> stephanie: oh, boy. [ buzzer ] but as you close your piece now remind us all what's romney's foreign policy credentials? cayman island shell corporations? his incompetence on the world stage has been quite stunning starting with his england trip, right? >> that's the thing. he's not running against senator obama. who, by the way again still had more electoral experience than romney and far more foreign policy credentials than romney. but he's running against a president who's been dealing
6:43 am
with this now for four years. and if he's not bringing anything to the game, then why should we even care that he's playing? >> stephanie: by the way -- [ ♪ "world news tonight" ♪ ] in happy clappy news, ending on happy clappy news, after the two political conventions obviously obama is leading in three of the most important battleground states according to the new msnbc poll. obama ahead by 5 points. in ohio, he's ahead by 7. in gallup, he's ahead what is it? 5. i was surprised actually because you're not usually my happy clappy friend. i feel like larry the landslide lizard could be stretching. >> i totally think so. it is also seeming like there is a chance that this obama bounce is actually pulling up some of the democratic candidates. elizabeth warren is firmly in the lead. >> stephanie: thank you! you know, rude, i always get accused of being too happy clappy. that's what i've been saying. i feel this could be a wave. i don't want to get ahead of myself on it.
